If you are new to Zen: Please send an email to let us know you are coming. Arrive at 7:00 pm for a brief orientation before our regular program.
Meetings always include Zen meditation (zazen) and Zen liturgy (chanting). On most Mondays there will also be either a dharma talk (lecture followed by a discussion), or the opportunity for individual meetings with a teacher (dokusan). You are invited to attend all or any portion of the activities — whatever works for your schedule and inclination. We do 25-minute periods of sitting meditation, and a few minutes of walking meditation between periods.
The event starts at 7:30 pm sharp. Some members show up early to socialize. We usually end between 9:00 and 9:30. You are free to leave at any time.
Attendance is free. Donations to help us pay our rent are appreciated.
